Hi, My name is***** you for letting me try and assist you with your problem.
You'll have to drain the oil and refill to get the gas out.
You'll probably be looking at replacing the spark plug one or two times.
Hold the throttle wide open because that fuel in the oil will flood out the motor.
Once you get it started it will probably smoke like a train but it won't hurt anything.
Let it run to burn out that excess fuel.
Then once it stops smoking if it's running a little rough change the plug again and it will eventually clear up and be fine.
